Music for a lifetime: Educating musicians to create a better world

Basic Equipment

Each YOPW string player should have the following materials in his or her case:

  • Rosin
  • Dust Cloth
  • Pencil
  • Extra strings (used strings are OK for emergencies)

Each student should also have a mute, since music assigned at all levels of our program occasionally calls for one. An inexpensive Tourte-style mute is preferable, since it is stored on the strings below the bridge when not in use and is hard to lose!
